BASH SELECTION & INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1: BASH SELECTION

NOTE: If the 32T-34T bashplate is the right one for your set up, you can skip forward to step 7.
STEP 2: REMOVING BOLT KEEPER
Remove bolt keeper (10) from rear bash plate bolt by pushing a 4mm hex through the bolt from the backside of the guide.
STEP 3: REMOVING BASH MOUNTING BOLTS
Remove bash mounting bolts (2) using a 5mm hex.
STEP 4: BASH PLATE SELECTION
Select desired bash plate (1) and place bash mounting bolts (2) into holes of bash plate.
STEP 5: INSTALL BASH MOUNTING BOLTS
Tighten bash mounting bolts (2) to 6Nm using your 5mm Hex key.
STEP 6: INSTALL BOLT KEEPER
Reinstall bolt keeper (10) on the rear bash mounting bolt (2).
GUIDE SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 7: REMOVE TOP GUIDE
Remove top guide (5,6) by removing the front guide locknut (11) with a 4mm hex (never adjust the rear T25 bolt).
STEP 8: ADJUST SLIDER
Loosen slider bolt (3) counter-clockwise on the bottom left of the sliding backplate (9) with a 4mm Hex key. Set sliding backplate in the highest position & lightly tighten bolt; It will be readjusted later.
STEP 9: INSTALL BACKPLATE
Hold backplate (8) directly against ISCG05 tabs. Check for clearance between the back side of the bashplate/guide and the bike frame. Use included 2.5mm washers (4) if necessary to space the backplate away from the frame.
STEP 10: ADJUST BACKPLATE
Rotate backplate (8) until slider adjustment bolt is directly above the crank axle and torque bolts to 5Nm using a 4mm Hex key.
STEP 11: MEASURING SPACING
Use spacer shim block to measure clearance between backplate (8) and chain.
STEP 12: TOP GUIDE SHIMS
Determine the corresponding number of chainline shims required. Place shims onto top guide mounting bolt (7).
Note: If more than 5 shims are required, install the supplied 2.5mm washers behind the backplate and return to step 9.
STEP 13: INSTALL TOP GUIDE
Assemble top guide (5,6) with spacers behind it. Tighten the top guide with outer guide (6) in the flipped up position. Tighten guide locknut (11) to 3Nm using your 4mm Hex key.
STEP 14: ADJUST TOP GUIDE HEIGHT
Insert a 4mm hex through the hole in the inner top guide (5), loosen height adjustment bolt and lower the tool onto the chain, between the links. Torque to 3Nm to set height.
Note: The chain link cut out on the inner top guide should sit directly behind the last link to make full contact of your chainring. You may need to adjust both rotation of the backplate (Step 10) and the height of the slider to achieve this position.
STEP 15: FLIP GUIDE
Flip outer guide (6) down into position using your hand.
